Current exhibits include
Ford Performance Showcase: Inside NASCAR
Ford Mustang Next Gen offers a glimpse into the development of the new car, which took place at Ford’s Dearborn Design Center and at the Ford Performance Technical Center in Concord, North Carolina. “Inside NASCAR” provides a deep dive into the process of NASCAR, from car design to race day, and the addition of Ford’s Next Gen Mustang further elevates the continued innovation taking place throughout the sport. Highlights of the display include a Next Gen Mustang that was used during the testing phase of development, along with a clay model that Ford produced as an additional tool to gain approval from Ford leadership and ensure the race car had the same unique Mustang characteristics as the production model.

Glory Road: 75 Years
Curated to reflect NASCAR’s rich, deep and wide 75-year history, the fifth rendition of Glory Road features 19 cars for the first time. A wide range of cars were assembled from different eras and series to tell the various facets of NASCAR’s 75-year history, creating one of the most eclectic collections ever placed on Glory Road. While some cars represent the constant competition evolution of the sport, including tracks and car innovation and the expansion of NASCAR to an international stage, other cars highlight the people who make it all come together, including driver and owner career arcs, family traditions, owners and crew chiefs. The exhibit celebrates the formation of NASCAR, which took place on December 14, 1947.
Martinsville Speedway’s 75th Anniversary Exhibit
The NASCAR Hall of Fame and NASCAR partnered to recognize the history and legacy of the Martinsville Speedway track with a special exhibit in the Hall’s “Inside NASCAR” display area. The first-ever exhibit honoring a track’s historic anniversary, along with its impact and contributions in the history of NASCAR, features photos from the track’s earliest days in 1947 and through the decades to today. There are trophies, helmets, programs, awards and, of course, two Martinsville traditions: the Ridgeway Grandfather Clock trophy and Jesse Jones hot dogs.
Jimmie Johnson: One Final Time
Jimmie Johnson, NASCAR’s third seven-time champion and only driver to win five consecutive championships (2006-2010) and is tied for sixth on the all-time win list (83), will be eligible for induction as part of the class of 2024, and is one of the few drivers who are inarguably a first-year guarantee for induction. The Hall features Johnson's silver #48 Ally Chevrolet, straight off the track from his top-5 finish in his final premiere series at the start of the 2020 season. The exhibit also features 20 race-worn fire suits - one from each season of his career – and signature trophies in an adjacent case.
